Are you an artist, photographer, writer, designer or printer? For creatives, an attractive online portfolio can really help draw in the business and make it easier to show off your capabilities. Here’s a list of top benefits to showcasing your work online.
Instantly Show what you can do
Instead of asking potential clients to request a brochure or portfolio and then having to wait for it to arrive in the post, or taking along a folder full of past work to your meeting, that face it, has gotten a bit dog eared, why not simply direct them to a neat, easy to peruse online portfolio? Let them swipe through examples of your work on their phone or iPad or view a slideshow on their PC and they are bound to be instantly impressed.
Get yourself out there
Online portfolios can be linked through email footers, blogs and social media for an instant snapshot of your talents. Why not show the world what you can do with just the click of a mouse, the tap of a link or the swipe of a screen?
Stay ahead of the crowd
Any creative professional will tell you it can be hard staying on top of daily tasks – new industry trends, client needs and admin can take away from the time you might need to get yourself out there. But a user friendly online portfolio will let you update new work quickly and easily, giving you a constant presence that’s bound to impress.
Show off your talent!
Finally, having a beautiful online portfolio of your work will give you a chance to get a well-earned pat on the back. Positive comments will really boost your kudos too.
